One of the most frequent questions we get asked is whether carpets will be shampooed or not. Carpet shampoo cleaning was a popular type of service until about the ’70s.
Carpet shampoo cleaning is now generally regarded as an outdated cleaning method. Thanks to the introduction of deep steam cleaning or hot water extraction which offers a much quicker drying period than the former. This makes it almost an impossible to find a company that still does carpet shampooing.
Deep steam cleaning is actually more efficient in a lot of different aspects. It is less complicated to use as the equipment is usually lightweight. Also, no more waiting for a long time to for the carpet to dry as it only uses steam whereas carpet shampooing would require thorough cleansing with water to remove excess shampoo layers that soaked into the carpet.
After all the trouble of carpet shampooing, there will be a soap residue left over. And it will fell a little sticky.
These residues can actually cause dirt to build up faster, therefore, requiring more regular cleaning of your carpets. Soon you’ll also notice a yellowish stain appearing due to the chemicals used during shampooing.
With the presence of better methods, shampoo cleaning is almost never used. Unless it’s the worst carpet situation like those really heavy stains, mud, and practically black looking carpets. And the carpet has been like this for years.
While the above example could be a reason to call for carpet shampooing. It is still undeniable that deep steam cleaning can still effectively restore carpets even of this state.
